Thank you for the information,
There can be a few possibilities.
It does not seem to be period cramps.
The symptoms can be due to pinched nerve in the back.
This can occur in disc disease, arthritis of spine.
The pain can radiate down the leg.
Other possibilities can be urinary colic, neuropathy or other nerve diseases.
You can take some measures to alleviate the pain.
Antiinflammatory drugs like motrin or tylenol can be used to relieve the pain.
Muscle relaxants can be helpful.
Please avoid any activity which aggravates the pain like bending, lifting heavy weight.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Doctor can take a few tests like X ray, MRI, urine test to diagnose the problem.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
